MPS Super Yummy

Not sure if this is super yummy but I made this birthday card for a boy in my daughters class, his party is on Sunday. Since Zoie was so excited for the Mini Monster cart I thought I would make her one from that. She choose this image.





I used two MPS stamps from Simply Sweet Occasions, my cuts were from Cricut cartridges Mini Monsters and Doodlecharms. Thanks for stopping by.

Ka-winky-dink

MPS is doing a birthday challenge and I had a card I was planning on making so the two just happen to coincide! How lucky for me, means I won't have to stay up late completing it the night before I want to give it to her. LOL

I had an idea that I wanted to make a pot of flowers, so then I did a search to get some extra inspiration and then had to try this card I found it was positively cute and just slightly off from what I had intended in the first place. LOL





Here are some of the cards that inspired mine. Flower Pot Pocket Card
I used WIMG for all the cuts, and MPS stamp sets Everyday Occasions & Simply Sweet Occasions. My idea was to make a normal card with the fold at the top which would mean the flowers would cover the back as the card opens. My hubby didn't think that would work very well. After my research of what is out there I decided to do the pot card with the flower insert. My variation was to keep my card idea and use it to help get it to stand on it's own.

I adapted it for what I wanted, plus I used the cricut cartridge and most of what I saw didn't use the cricut for the pot. I know this because I found this tutorial on making the pot of flowers here: Flower Pot Card Tutorial

Well this is my entry for Robyn's challenge. Robyn if you see this I hope your birthday was everything you wanted and a yummy cupcake!

Zoie's Monster


She just had to make her friend a monster after sitting and holding the mini monster cartridge case and looking at the back. I totally forgot to get a picture of it before she went off to school to give it to her friend. It was pretty cute.

I did manage to get Kaya and her to let me take a picture of them with the monster so we got a pic of it but it isn't a great one, you can't see the details that make it so super cute! Sentiment on it is MPS Everyday Occasions "My Friend". Just had to mention this, I'm going to have to make a card pack with monsters! So fun

MPS Blog Hop

I need to start off with Happy 2011 since this is my frist post of the new year. I look forward to a wonderful year, as long as it is better than 2010 I will be SUPER happy!

I really need to check in more often and show off my handy work. I often make things and don't show it off. I love poking around in the blog heaven and seeing what others create too.

Last night I did all the rounds of the Robyn's My Pink Stamper Blog Hop, enjoying all the fabulous items that people had created for the first hop. If you would like to participate in Robyn's First Blog Hop ...hop on over to her blog and start with the first My Pink Designer listed in her blog hop entry. I have been wanting to make a thank you card for someone so I started with what I had been thinking of originally. Then I adjusted my colors for mission message and ended up doing both but now I'm not sure if I will make it a thank you card. LOL I still can but I haven't totally made up my mind but I just love what I came up with.

I really like how the inside turned out too, I don't often decorate the inside of cards but I really like how the reversing of colors looked inside.



Well thanks for stopping by, I had a ton of fun creating something for the hop. See you soon. It is rain rain rain here in Oregon so I will bid you all adu, ciao for now and have a cootie free day!
